- Corsair Ships PC3200 CAS2 XPERT Memory Modules

Corsair have extended their enthusiast DDR memory lineup today, introducing modules based on their "XPERT" multi-display feature set. The new TwinXP1024-3200C2 modules are a matched pair of 512MByte DDR DIMMs tested at PC3200 speeds at 2-3-3-6 latency settings on Intel platforms and at 2.5-3-3-6 latencies on AMD platforms to ensure solid performance. If interested, the full press release can be obtained here.


Fremont, California, February 22, 2005: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today began shipping a PC3200 CAS2 model of their XPERT series memory, the world's first memory modules that measure and display critical performance parameters.


This 1GByte matched module pair includes the full XPERT feature set. XPERT technology uses an integrated microcontroller and embedded sensors to measure voltage, temperature, and frequency on the memory module. Each of these parameters, along with a user-programmable scrolling marquee can be shown on a big alphanumeric display that is part of the memory module. Corsair XPERT modules also have two rows of memory activity LED's that show real-time memory activity, similar to the popular Corsair PRO series.


- OCZ Announces PC-4000 Voltage eXtreme Gold Series


Also in on the action today is OCZ with their latest addition to the "Voltage eXtreme series" of DDR memory modules. These DDR500 sticks are factory rated up to a rather high 3.3v, in turn helping to maintain tight timings of 2-2-2 at 250mhz perfectly stable. Full details over at OCZ's press room, and the product page can be viewed here folks.


Following the successful introduction of the ground-breaking line of Voltage eXtreme DDR, OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the addition of PC-4000 Gold VX DDR to the Voltage eXtreme series.


PC-4000 Gold VX, a member of the exclusive OCZ Voltage eXtreme family, delivers outstanding, high-speed performance by allowing users to up the memory voltage and, consequentially, intensify performance capabilities. Typically, conventional modules lose stability and endurance under increased voltage, but Gold VX DDR is designed to operate at a high voltage in order to significantly increase speed without any adverse affects to stability whatsoever.
